Of course it was never revoked. In fact what really happened is sheriff turner concocted a bunch of ridiculous lies, filed a complaint with POST, and based on those lies, and before an investigation was done, POST recommended revocation. Why did he do it? Because he feared Woodruff's imtegrity and that one day Woodruff would run for office. When a hearing was held and POST heard the true facts AND determined there was absolutely no basis for the allegations, POST did not revoke Woodruff's certification. POST came to believe it was truly a politically motivated attack without any factual badis. ONLY reason Woodruff's certification was even put on probation was because of an alleged violation of an internal rule created by Turner himself which he included in his complaint to POST. Though the rule had not actually been violated, no one at the s.o. Was willing to stand up and admit Woodruff had followed the rule. POST director has confirmed that had the technical violation been the only thing reported, POST would never have even considered the matter at all. James woodruff is an honorable man and willing to treat people fairly without stooping to lies, threats, and intimidation of others. Isnt that what every person deserves from their law enforcement officers? Last i checked there was no special pass just bc you might be the "boss". Good ridance to a boil on the butt of Troup County!
